When in doubt, blame it on your nonexistent identical twin.

That was the rather unoriginal explanation one western Pennsylvania woman gave after picking a hotel room clean, according to police.

The Beaver County Times reported that Jennifer Brown, 31, was charged with false reports and theft after she allegedly stripped her room in a Holiday Inn in Big Beaver, Pa., of two comforters, two throw blankets, four pillows, an alarm clock, a coffee pot, a basket and a hair dryer.

A state trooper who found her at another hotel nearby after she cleared out of the Holiday Inn said she blamed a twin sister named Lisa Brown for the thefts.

The bag of hotel room basics was found in her room, where Brown said her sister must have returned them — but a call to Brown's aunt confirmed that no twin sister existed, police said.
